BREEAM - BRE Environmental Assessment Method - was established in 1990 as a tool to measure the sustainability of new non-domestic buildings in the UK. BREEAM sets the standard for best practice in sustainable building design, construction and operation and has become one of the most comprehensive and widely recognised measures of a building's environmental performance. A BREEAM assessment uses recognised measures of performance, which are set against established benchmarks, to evaluate a building’s specification, design, construction and use. The measures used represent a broad range of categories and criteria from energy to ecology. They include aspects related to energy and water use, the internal environment (health and well-being), pollution, transport, materials, waste, ecology and management processes. BREEAM addresses wide-ranging environmental and sustainability issues and enables developers, designers and building managers to demonstrate the environmental credentials of their buildings to clients, planners and other initial parties The stages of assessment in which BREEAM schemes can currently be used to assess the environmental impacts arising as a result of an individual building development (including external site areas) are: - Design stage (leading to an interim certificate) - post Construction Stage (leading to a final certificate) - Operational Stage(BREEAM in use currently in development for international
BREEAM rewards performance above regulation which delivers environmental, comfort or health benefits. BREEAM awards points or ‘Credits’ and groups the environmental impacts as follows: –Energy: operational energy and carbon dioxide (CO2) –Management: management policy, commissioning, site management and procurement –Health and Wellbeing: indoor and external issues (noise, light, air, quality etc) –Transport: transport-related CO2 and location related factors –Water consumption and efficiency –Materials: embodied impacts of building materials, including lifecycle impacts like embodied carbon dioxide –Waste: construction resource efficiency and operational waste management and minimisation –Pollution: external air and water pollution –Land Use: type of site and building footprint –Ecology: ecological value, conservation and enhancement of the site The total number of points or credits gained in each section is multiplied by an environmental weighting factor which takes into account the relative importance of each section. Section scores are then added together to produce a single overall score. Once the overall score for the building is known this is translated into a rating on a scale of: -Pass -Good -Very Good -Excellent -Outstanding
